Both countries had to win their deciding doubles rubbers in the quarterfinals. Denis Shapovalov’s return to the Canadian team proved pivotal as he teamed up with Vasek Pospisil to deliver an outsiders victory over Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz to confirm this semifinal. The more familiar, and very experienced, team of Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini rolled back the years to book Italy into the final four.
The likely singles matches are likely to be Lorenzo Sonego vs Denis Shapovalov and Lorenzo Musetti vs Felix Auger-Aliassime. In terms of rankings that should give Canada the edge but Canada have gone 1-1 in all of the ties in the singles rubbers so far this week and always depended on their doubles team for the win. The withdrawals of Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner has severely dented the depth of the Italian team but they still have two high quality singles players contesting this semifinal.
If the tie does come down to the doubles then Bolelli/Fognini have gone 3-1 this week, but the likely Canadian pair of Pospisil/Shapovalov were extremely impressive to win their last doubles. However, the doubles edge goes to the Italians and they could sneak through as a result. The Italians haven’t reached the final of Davis Cup since 1998, could this be a chance for them?
